senator dianne feinstein will not be included in the democratic gun control legislation that currently is working its way through the chamber. instead reid says feinstein's proposal will have, quote, an opportunity for a vote, possibly as a separate amendment. now this effort was sparked by the newtown school shooting in december and since then, we have seen a surge in applications for gun permits across this country. according to the fbi we saw a record 19 1/2 million background checks for firearms last year. nearly three million of them coming in december alone. that is the most for any month on record. and more than 7 million from december through february. that is a 54% increase from the previous year. this national trend is echoed in the microcosm of newtown, connecticut. where law enforcement say they have seen the pace of applications for gun permits double. so what does this all mean for the gun control debate, an effort going forward? joining me fox news political analyst juan williams. juan, we can talk about the strategy here and move onto the legislation itself. why, why di

spreading his stunning decision to drop the assault weapons ban proposed by senator dianne feinstein. i was incensed when i heard this. hearing harry reid say, well, i can't get enough votes so we'll put it on the back burner. this is about prohibiting the kind of weapons that murdered the poor children at sandy hook. that's what he put on the back burner. what was your reaction? >> well, i have so many p things to say we don't have time to cover them all. harry reid and these democrats, this is not something unusual. democrats have a history of backing away, backing down. they are the ones that accepted the new math that the majority meant 60 instead of 51. this attitude of, well, we are not going to get -- this is wih our side -- we have weinies on our side. republicans have the courage of convictions. no matter how crazy the idea is. transvaginal probes. they will not step back. >> look at the nra. >> they go for it. >> same way. >> wayne la pierre has driven the campaign since aurora and sandy hook. here's the thing about la pierre. h he's flip-flopped on key issues. here's what he

the united states senate was unable to do. dianne feinstein's ban did not pass on the floor vote because harry reid decided they were not going it to put it in their gun bill that they're going to put on the floor. it's an assaults weapons ban. over 200 weapons are still available to americans. but no, this was not good enough. the reason was because reid and other democratic senators were afraid of how it would play. max baucus of montana jon tester of montana. mark begich of ark heidi keitkamp and joe maughan. they're running scared. if they all band together and said you know what we're going to do this, they would be with the american people. it turns out this time they were not with the american people. and then of course "abc news" washington poll post conducted march 7th shows 57% of americans support assault weapons ban. 41% oppose it. 57% of americans support it. why cannot the senate get that through their heads? why can't they sit there and say, you know what, this is what the people want. let's vote on it. 57 is the smallest majority for any of these gun laws. we've heard 91%
of a gun control bill slated for debate next month. california senator diane feinstein said it will instead be offered as an amendment. but that amendment is unlikely to survive because of solid republican opposition. three other gun control measures have been approved by the senate judiciary committee: a measure to decrease gun trafficking, a proposal to increase school safety money, and a background checks bill. republican senator rand paul put his support behind comprehensive immigration reform today. during a speech at the u.s. hispanic chamber of commerce, the kentucky republican said the nation's 11 million illegal immigrants should have a legal way to stay in the u.s. >> we will find a place for you. this cause, however, those who work for reform must understand that a real solution must ensure our borders are secure. we must also treat those who are here already with understanding and compassion without also unduly rewarding them for coming illegally. >> sreenivasan: bipartisan efforts are under way in both the house and senate to overhaul u.s. immigration laws. today speaker of the
and paint it before you get there. >> well, maybe so. yesterday, senator feinstein said the assault weapons ban is not going to be part of the bill. that's something you've been predicting for a while. i've been talking about for a couple weeks now. what are the chances we see it as added as an amendment possibly down the road. >> there's no doubt there'll be efforts to add it, i think this is the official death of the assault weapons ban. it's harry reid conceding it can't be part of the main bill. they're trying to focus on what is doable. what can they get done in april? and what they think can get done would be universal background checks, including for private transactions. if i was going to sell you a gun that doesn't have to be any sort of background check on that under a bill being knocked around in the senate, you would have to have some validation there before that purchase could be made. and that's the sticking point right now. that's a far cry from what democrats were talking about two or three months ago. that's a pretty small, narrow provision in the scope of all the big gun c
